Exploring some critical ‘big’ and ‘bigger’ questions facing the governance of metropolitan regions, we theorize how non-state actors, such as, business organizations, entice local governments to participate in metropolitan planning–an exercise which would then require the adherence of local governments to framework obligations defined by the state. Through the empirical case of the Ruhr metropolitan area of Germany, we demonstrate that such a combination of enticement and process management (floating obligation) can help to engender ‘cohesive’ metropolitan governance in terms of conflict settlement in the selection of a limited set of priorities–an outcome which we then critically analyse in the wider context of ‘good’ metropolitan governance.
